Druids author Morgan Llywelyn

An exciting reimagining of the ancient Celts young Ainvar is an orphan taken by the chief druid of the Carnutes in. First a masterful story told by a masterful storyteller I found it fascinating that the author was able to remain true to history and left the story with a sad ending However she told the story well enough that I did not feel sad at the end but triumphant A recurring motif in the book was that death is not the end a tenet of Druid beliefA very enchanting story of spiritual Gauls Wonderful incorporation of real Celtic myths and real history Caesar invades Gaul in the book as he does in history but this book tells the story of the besieged Too often we simply say that Caesar made his name in conuering Gaul What of the residents of Gaul What was their fateHighly recommended as a dramatized historical account political commentary collection of forgotten Celtic religious myths and even economic contrast between the economies of ancient Gaul and Roman Empire
